Amazing make-over

This colour restoring cream gives a truly impressive same colour make-over. Coverage can be sheer or built to almost full with laying of coats. The semi-opaque colour cream rejuvenates tired leather coatings, in 2 simple steps; first, clean the leather with Spot & Prep (No.4) then coat with colour cream. Apply 1 or more coatings per the needs of your leather. Extra coats can be applied to high traffic areas for more coverage. 

Easy maintenance

With this easy to use refresher, you can touch up your leather coatings as wear and tear happens. It provides light to nearly complete coverage over mild surface damage such as scuffs and scratches, unifies colour variations, conceals marks and stains and leaves a protective satin finish. 

Unlike polish, it's hard wearing and won't rub off onto clothing

This is not a polish or coloured wax. It is a pro-grade all-in-one leather colourant that is self sealing. This durable product was developed to enable easy, in-home or in-car all-over same colour make-overs. For extra durability, finish with 2 coats of clear Topcoat (No.7). 

2 simple steps 

  1. First, remove surface soiling, waxes, silicones and oils, and open the pores for maximum adhesion of coatings using Spot & Prep (No.4)
  2. Apply Colour Restoration Cream 
  3. Optional: Apply Topcoat (No.7) (sold separately)

No special equipment

Do it yourself and save money. This kit assembles the products used by professionals.  No special equipment is required and, after protecting your floors, you can work on your furniture, car seats, handbags or apparel right where they are.  

Colour & sheen

Choose from 85 popular colours. Sample Pots are great for colour testing. They contain leather paint which is a different product but the colours are the same. 

The finish (sheen or shine level) is satin. If you'd like a flatter finish, add Dulling Agent (No.30) to the Colour Restoration Cream (No.32). If you'd like a shinier finish, add Topcoat Gloss or High Gloss then apply a couple of coats over your colour work. Sold separately.

Durability comparison

When colouring pigmented (painted/coated) leathers, maximum durability is usually achieved using the Repair & Recolour Kit (a more extensive process). Colour Creams trade some durability for ease and convenience. To extend durability, apply clear topcoat over the colour cream, adhere to a regular care regime and prevent abrasion from pet claws etc.

Instructions: Print the Directions for Use, Tips and Details  

Leather

This kit is designed for pigmented (painted/coated) leather. It can also be used on some older aniline, semi-aniline, waxed and oil pull-up leathers although the Aniline Restoration Kit may be more suitable.

It is not suitable for use over leather filler or for changing colours. A good colour match delivers best results.

Coverage

Essentials: 1-2 armchairs or 1 x recliners, 1 x 2-3 seater sofa, 4-8 dining chairs, 1 car interior

Extra: 1 x 2-3 seater sofa plus 1-2 armchairs or ottomans or chaise

Like A Pro: 1 x standard 4 - 5 seater sofa (heavily soiled)

The Works: 1 x large modular sofa, or multiple large treatments

Note: Coverage estimates are approximate. Coverage is affected by a number of variables such as the type and condition of your leather and the colour. Your job may require more or less of one or more kit components.

Summary
1) Work area
2) Vacuum
3) Surface Prep
4) Colour Restoration Cream
5) Optional: Topcoat (Sold separately)
_______________________________________________________
1) Work area
Lay down drop sheets to protect your work area and ensure good ventilation.

2) Vacuum
Vacuum to remove pet hair, dust and loose particles.

3) Surface Prep
Spray Spot & Prep (No.4) on one area at a time. A scrubbing brush can be used to agitate into the grain. Use a cloth to wipe away dirt and grime from the leather using moderately firm pressure. Repeat until all areas are thoroughly clean and free of soiling, oils, silicones, waxes and emollients. Apply extra cleaner and scrubbing on greasy areas. The aim is to remove grease from the surface as its not possible to remove it from the inner structure.

Note: If the coatings on your leather are inferior, old, compromised or worn, there may be some coatings disturbance (colour coming off onto the cloth). Whilst minimising colour removal is desirable, a thorough clean is essential for optimal adhesion of the Colour Cream.

Optional: Smooth rough areas
Whilst it’s not necessary to sand all areas, if there are areas that are rough to touch, smooth them by sanding with 800 grit sandpaper. The aim is to remove any loose or flaking coatings, smooth surface irregularities, and keys the surface to promote a good bond between the substrate and new coatings. When done, wipe over to remove dust.

4) Colour Restoration Cream
Colour test
Do a test spot of Colour Restoration Cream to an inconspicuous place. Allow to dry then assess the colour. If it needs adjustment, blend in other colours (sold separately) to achieve the right colour for your job.

Optional: Adjust shine
If you want a Matte result, add 5%-30% Dulling Agent (No.30) (sold separately) to the Colour Restoration Cream (No.32). More can be added if required. Test as you add. Apply a 1-3cm spot, dry it with a hair dryer then decide if more Dulling Agent is needed.
If you want a shiny result, add around 10% Topcoat (No.7) Gloss or High Gloss to the Colour Restoration Cream (No.32) and, when all colour work is completed and dry, apply 2 coats of glossy topcoat to finish.

Application method
Colour cream can be applied using a sponge or foam/paint brush. Treat one area at a time. It can be beneficial to practice in an inconspicuous area to learn how the product handles. Pour some cream onto a sponge, then, using moderate pressure, wipe it across the surface of the leather, finishing with smooth, even strokes. Experiment with circular, long or crosshatch techniques to find the one that is right for your job. The product dries quite quickly. Take care not to disturb the coatings whilst drying as this can cause sweep and drag marks. Be sure to coat all areas including nooks and crannies.
In high wear areas, build up the finish with a few coats. Apply extra layers to cover marks and stains. One to two layers may be enough for hidden areas such as between cushions. If there’s any sticking, dry the cream with a hair dryer before allowing the panels to rest together. Between each coat, allow 30 mins for the cream to dry or carefully heat with a hair dryer or gentle sunshine to speed up drying. It is typical to apply 1-2 coats to low wear areas (backs and sides) and 2 – 6 coats to high wear areas. More can be applied if needed. Continue to apply until all areas have been treated to the desired level.

5) Optional: Topcoat
When colour work is done, allow 2 or more days drying time then apply 2 coats of clear topcoat for extra durability. When the colour coats are dry, apply topcoat using a sponge, roller or spray-gun. Allow drying. Apply a second and final coat. Prioritise high traffic areas. Allow to dry. Prevent freshly coated faces touching until they are dry.
Note: Matte topcoat is best applied with a spray gun. If hand application leaves a streaky finish, try mixing approximately 20% Colour Restoration Cream (No.32) into both or the last coat of Topcoat.

Drying time
When done, allow a couple of days before using the leather again. The coatings are touch dry in 30 mins, dry in 2 days and fully cured in 14 days. Treat the coatings with care to avoid scratches, scuffs or other damage. Don’t use covers such as sheets or blankets in the first 2 weeks as fibres from the fabrics may embed in the soft coatings and pull them off when lifted. This make-over process can be repeated as needed. Refresh intervals vary depending on the type and condition of the leather as well as the amount and type of use the leather receives.

Tips
• Avoid touching the leather between coats during the restoration process as body oils could compromise coatings adhesion

• There is no 'normal' number of coats as each piece of leather is different and some colours build coverage faster than others

• Mild sunshine, a room heater or a hair dryer can be used to speed drying between each coat.

• Avoid using Spot & Prep (No.4) or other cleaners (including water) on new coatings until they are cured (14 days).

• If you find any blemishes, grit or hair in your coatings, allow a couple of days drying (or speed dry with a hair dryer) then lightly sand with 800 -1200 grit sandpaper. Follow with additional coating over the affected area.

• If at any time, you see coatings disturbance during the process (for example, Topcoat appears to remove some colour), the coatings are not dry yet. Allow further drying.

Maintenance
This make-over process can be repeated as needed. Refresh intervals vary depending on the type and condition of the leather as well as the amount and type of use the leather receives. Note: Colours prefixed with the word ‘Aniline’ contain a small percentage of dyes. No matter the maker, dyes are not UV stable. Some fading can be expected in
high UV environments. Protect (No.3) contains a UV barrier that can help to reduce UV fading when applied regularly.
